When my son told me he and his girlfriend were expecting a baby, I knew I had to double up my blanket making skills and get some blankets made for the new arrival. At this point I was wishing I had not made as many for Hope when she was on the way as I had to match the number of blankets made - I am not there yet and new baby Ellie is a month old now!!
Ellie's mum's favourite colour is blue, and years ago I made her a blue granny square blanket using this James C Brett Woodlander yarn. I had a few balls left, so what better than to make Ellie a blanket to match her mummy's?
I decided on a C2C pattern. C2C is Corner to Corner crochet, worked across a diagonal creating a lovely basket weave effect. I did 5 rows of the variegated blue, then broke it up with a line of white.
It's a really quick stitch to work and the blanket grew quite quickly.
Then, it was done, time for some edging. I decided on a shell pattern to go all the way around the edge. Ellie's mummy loved it :)
Better get on with making blanket number 2....and 3.....
